Monday’s Lowdown: Let’s Watch Some Bands, Shall We?

Your Lowdown will start out by urging you to run to your closets to locate warm, redundant-but-nice clothing items. KSLG and Betty Chinn would be super stoked if you could drive those down to the Eureka Co-op for the annual Warm and Fuzzy Clothing Drive. ’Tis the cold season. People need. Thanks. 

After you have completed your good deed, you have earned a pass to enjoy Arcata’s too-good-for-Monday band options. Jambalaya’s musical hat trick is headlined by retro garage-dwellers Allah-Las (a/v sample below on the left), while Blondies hath coaxed a return trip from the alt-poppy Cosmonauts (and on the right).

Yay, Monday. You did good.

—Andrew Goff

The Jam / 9 p.m. / $12 / 21+
“Three of the four bandmembers were working in the L.A. branch of the legendary record store Amoeba when the group formed in 2008, and they must have spent a great deal of time researching the garage and psychedelic sounds of the ‘60s while propping up the counter.”
